THE UNITED STATES WILL SOON
KNOCK AT THE DOORS OF
CANADA FOR WHEAT.
A Crop of 60,000,000 Bushels of Wheat
Will Be the Record of 1904. -
The results of the - threshing In
Western Canada are not yet complet
ed, but from information at hand, it is
safe to say that the average per acre
will be reasonably high, and a fair
estimate will place the total yield of
wheat at 60,000,000 buBhels. At pres
ent prices this will add to the wealth
of the farmers nearly $60,000,000.
Then think of the immense yield of
oats and barley, and the large herds
of cattle, for all of which good prices
will be paid.
The following official telegram was
sent by Honorable Clifford Sifton, Min
ister of the Interior, to Lord Strath
cona. High Commissioner for Can
ada: "Am now able to state definitely
that under conditions of unusual diffi
culty in Northwest a fair average crop
of wheat of good quality has been
reaped and is now secure from sub
stantial damage. The reports of in
Jury by frost and rust were grossly
exaggerated. The wheat of Manitoba
and Northwest Territories will aggre
gate from fifty-five to sixty million
bushels. The quality is good and the
price is ranging around one dollar
Frank H. Spearman, in the Satur
day Evening Post, says:
"When our first transcontinental
railroad was built, learned men at
tempted by isotherman demonstration
to prove that wheat could not profit
ably be grown north of where the line
was projected; but the real granary
of the world lies up to 300 miles north
of the Canadian Pacific railroad, and
the day is not definitely distant when
the United States will knock at the
doers of Canada for its bread. Rail
road men see such a day; -it may be
hoped that statesmen also will see it,
and arrange their reciprocities while
they may do so gracefully. Americans
already have swarmed into that far
country and to a degree have taken
the American wheat field with them.
Despite the fact that for .years a little
Dakota station on the St. Paul road

the largest primary grain market in
the world, the Dakota and Minnesota
will one day yield their palm to Sas

Warning to Housewives.
The average consumer of baking pow
der does not know that a reaction occurs
in the process of baking;. Whenever a
chemical reaction takes place, the nature
of te original materials is entirely
changed, so that the substances which
remain in the food to be eaten are very
different from those which composed the
baking powder before baking. For this
reason, the statement that a baking
powder contains alum or cream of tartar
is worthlesa so far as Informing the
consumer as to what he eats. What the
consumer wants to know Is what goes
Into his stomach, not what Is in the can.
Food prepared with a cream of tartar
baking powder does not contain any
cream of tartar. Just as food prepared
with alum baking powder is free from
alum. In tne oass of the high-priced
trust baking powders this bread residue
consists of Rochelle Salts, the active
ingredient Of SeldUts Powders. That is.
when food prepared with these treat
baking powders Is eaten, the consumer
Is taking a dose ef Seidllts Powders.
Rochelle Baits is a medicine and not a
food, and this constant dosing will se
riously derange the digestive organs.
Prof. Wiley, chemist of the TJnited States
Department of Agriculture, has declared
in aubstance that "A loaf of bread made
from a quart of flour leavened with
cream of tartar baking powder contains
ia grains more, of Rochelle Salts than
is contained In one Seidlits Powder. At
a hearing before the Committee on Pub
lic Health of the Massachusetts Legists
ture. on a bill designed to prevent this
wholesale dosing of the public, the fol
lowing eminent Boston physicians testi
fied against the healthfulnesa of Roch
elle Salts, and strongly recommended the
passage of a law -which would prohibit
the sale of powders which left tLis dan
gerous drug in fooo: Dr. Hartung, Dr. C.
O. Kepler. Dr. F. B. Foster. Dr. O. M.
Why should the consumer pay forty
five or fifty cents per pound for baking
powder when the best baking powder
in the world can be made to retail at
twenty-five cents per pound the price
asked for Calumet Baking Powder) and
leave a fair manufacturer's profit T The
manufacturers of Calumet Baking Pow
der have for years made a standing- of
fer of $1,000.00 for any aubstance inju
rious to health fonnd in food prepared
from it. Bread made from Calumet ia en
tirely free from Rochelle Salts, alum,

AS THE WORLD
DESERT MAY BE RECLAIMED.
Possibility ef Success In Restoring
Fertility of Sahara. -
It is estimated that the oases of the
Sahara occupy about one-fourth of its
area, the other thirty-nine-fortieths be
ing hopeless desert. But this is guess
work, as is, indeed, the exact location
of most of the cases themselves. So
poorly have the observations been tak
en by former visitors at many of these
spots that often an explorer who has
guided himself by their directions will
find himself far out of his course and
hopeless of untwisting the tangle, ex
cept by independent investigation.
Now that France possesses recog
nized claim to the greater part of the
Sahara and has brought the desert
tribes Into some kind of order, there Is
a prospect that the whole region will
be carefully gone over, so that in the
course of not . many years reliable
maps may be made. Indeed, the vari
ous expeditions under French army
officers that have been out for one
purpose or another during the past
year accomplished notable results.
Last spring Commandant Laperrine
of the military staff in the Tuat oases,
with three brother officers, an astron
omer, and a party of seventy-five sol
diers on fleet camels, covered a dis
tance of 1,300 smiles in four months,
at a pace which far exceeds that of
the big old-time expeditions. He
fonnd water and pasturage, and lived
almost entirely off the resources of
the desert. His report shows that of
forty-three places whose locations
were accurately determined by his
astronomer all but one had been
placed very much too far to the west
on the maps. Timissao, for instance.
Ilea 15 miles southeast of its old map
location.- Ideles, on the other hand,
lies about a degree of longitude west
of where it had been supposed to be.
With the desert once fully explored,
the next question will be how to make
It most useful. The dry river beds
show that in former ages it had, at
least in the western part, a much
larger water supply than it has now.
It may not be out of the power of men
of a generation hence to restore to
some extenjt at least the old condi
tions. SUCCESSOR TO VON PLEHVE.

Unoriental Trait in Chinese Minister
Minister Chang, Chinese represent
ative in London, is among the most re
spected, diplomats in the British cap
ital. He is gifted with an unoriental
preference for plainness In costume,
which is fortunate for himself, as he
is not wealthy. Prince Chen, an im
mensely rich Chinese nobleman, was
in London recently, and -in the coarse
of an Interview with the minister
said: "Why is It that-yon do not
dress more richly, and why do yon not
provide more elaborate costumes for
Mme. Chang and the members of your
suite?" Minister Chang replied, calm
ly: "In the first place, your highness,
I do not care for rich attire, and. In
the next place, being S poor man,' I
can not afford to do as yon suggest-
It Is understood that a substantial in
crease in Minister Chang's allowance
-was the outcome of this interview. '

- French Millionaires.
The French ministry of finance has
just published the statistics of wills
proved in France in 1903, and from
this it is evident that he number of
very rich people in the country has
been grossly exaggerated. 1 Last year
only 497 wills, leaving -more than'
1,000,000 francs, or 40,000, were
proved, and of these only x4 exceeded
2.000,000 francs, of 80,000. There
were only eight fortunes of over 10,
000,000 franc or 400,000, and the
highest of all was of the exceptional
value of 2,000,000. It is evident,
then, that the real millionaires in
France are very few, but it should be
noted that rich men in France marry
rich wives, so that a family may be
much more wealthy than the will of
either father or mother would imply.
' No Owner to Valuable Lands.
Another parcel of real estate in
Brooklyn is discovered to have nc
owner of record, and taxes are piling
up on a $350,000 slice of the Green
point district. Two weeks ago it was
found that in South Brooklyn there
were eleven parcels, valued at $150,
000, tor which the city had no record
of the owners. But the big parcel in
Manhatan avenue, between Ash street
and Newton creek, offers the most un
accountable mystery. Real estate
agents have no knowledge oi - the
owners. Who collects the rents for
the factories on the land is a secret
the tenants profess not to know.
Hessian Money Made Rothschild For
tune. It is not generally known that the
vast fortune of the Rothschilds is due
In large degree to the money which
England paid for the Hessians. When
Napoleon was raiding Germany the
elector of Hease-Cassel intrusted this
treasure to Meyer Anselm .Roths
child, and the fidelity with which
that famous Hebrew administered the
trust raised him to that high place in
international finances which the fam
ily, in its several branches, has since
occupied and extended.
The total government receipts from
tobacco from all sources were $44,-
655,808.75 for the fiscal year, against
$43,514,810.24 for the fical year 1902-
1903, or an increase of $1,140,998.51
This increase is participated in by all
branches of the trade except cigar
manufacture here we see a decrease
of $236,756.01. As cigar manufacturing
shows the worst condition so tobacco
manufacture shows the best condition.
Receipts for this branch of the trade
exceeded the receipts for the previous
fiscal year by $1,007,790.02.

" Jkas Mns. PnrxnAM : There are but few wives and mothers who
bave not at times endured agonies and such pain as only women know.
I wish such women knew the value of Lydia E. Pinkba.m's Veg-etaJble
Componnd. It is a remarkable medicine, different in action from any
I ever knew and thoroughly reliable.
I have seen cases where women doctored for years without Toerma-
fient benefit, who were cored in less than three months after taking your
Vegetable Compound, while others who were chronio and incurable
came out cured, happy, and in perfect health after a thorough treatment
with this medicine. 1 have never used it myself without gaining great
benefit. A few doses restores my strength and appetite, and tones up
the entire system. Teur medicine has been tried and found true, hence
I fully endorse it." Mas. R. A, Akdzbsox, 225 Washington St- Jack

W hen women are troubled with

feeling, inflammation of the ovaries, backache, flatulence, g-eneral debility,
indigestion, and nervous prostration, thev should remember there is one tried
and true remedy. Lydia E. rinkhani's Vegetable Compound at once
removes such troubles. .j
The experience and testimony of some of the most noted
women of America go to prove, beyond a question, tliat Lydia E. '
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will correct all such trouble
once by removing the cause and restoring the organs to a healthy ,
and normal condition. If In doubt, write Airs. Pinkham at Lynn,
lllass, as thousands do. Her advice is free and helpful.
No other medicine for women in the world has received such wide
spread and unqualified endorsement. No other medicine has such a
record of cures of female -troubles. Refuse to buy any substitute.
